Telco Systems Rolls Out New 10GE High Capacity Carrier Ethernet Network for KENET in Kenya

Developing Telecoms

Telco Systems has successfully deployed a new 10GE high capacity carrier Ethernet network for the Kenya Education Network (KENET) in Kenya.

KENET is a not-for-profit telecommunications operator in Kenya supporting the communication needs of the education and research institutions in the country. KENET is designated as the National Research and Education Network (NREN) of Kenya and provides Internet bandwidth services to member institution campuses.

The new carrier Ethernet network built by Telco Systems for KENET initially provides Internet access and data centre interconnectivity to all the universities and research institutes in Kenya. It could eventually be extended to provide connectivity to other educational institutions, including the primary and secondary schools in the country.

The network is managed and orchestrated by Telco Systems’ state-of-the-art EdgeGenie Orchestrator management system, which gives complete control over the service provisioning processes. It is also based on Telco Systems’ T-Metro 8001 10GE service aggregation platforms and T-Marc 3348S 10GE demarcation devices, providing KENET with certified CE 2.0 services based on VPLS.
